What we do

Protect | Partner | Build | Sustain

Since 2006, UCTT has been instrumental in the development of tracks in the Upper Clutha, delivering 95km of new tracks, investing $2.4m in new tracks and associated bridges. The demand for tracks and trails is increasing. With a continuously increasing population in Wānaka, and an increased emphasis on the importance of health and well-being it’s no surprise! This means that protecting, building and sustaining our network of tracks and trails continues to become more and more important.

Latest projects

Core to our strategy is maintaining our current network and expanding the network by building new tracks. To this end there are always a series of projects on the go, both new tracks and maintenance of our current ones.
